Angry And coming soon...fish cruelty at your school!

*sigh*

I'll be quick because I'm really tired, but they are doing the "ecosystem" thing at my old school still . They haven't started yet-they use guppies, so I want to stop it before any harm is done. I'm waiting for my brother to tell me when they're doing it and the teacher's name so that I know who and when I need to write a letter to.

I'm NOT looking foward to writing a long and involved letter but I am definitely going to interfere no matter how much I despise writing....at least I'm good at it so I can make a point.

Why oh why are people so stupid, mean, and cruel? You'd think after years of seeing more than 75% of the fish die that they'd learn.....I'm just going to shut up now because I don't want to go off on a tangent but people are just so terrible !

They put them in the bottom of a soda bottle with another bottle on top that has dirt, a plant (the roots go in the water) and a bug. The fish is supposed to live off the plant roots, the plant lives off the water and fish waste, and the bug...I dunno I think it's supposed to live off the plant and dirt. They never change the water or feed the fish & the experiment lasts weeks. The whole thing is sealed because the plant produces oxygen right? "sarcasm"!

So
1) there's no oxygen
2)AMMONIA...they fail to teach the nitrogen cycle..duhhhh the plant isn't going to keep the water clean >:(
3)guppies can't live off plant roots any more than we can live off of lettuce
4)it's WAY too tiny to support life at all

Basically all it proves is that fish will die if exposed to ammonia, starved, and depleted of oxygen >:(

They don't think of the fish as living beings, they're just "things" that they can experiment on.
